NSV (Nullsoft Streaming Video) is an audiovisual container format for streaming video data online. It was created in 2003 by Justin Frankel, while he was still working for Nullsoft. NSV only supports VP3 video codes and MP3 audio, although it was initially designed to stream all audio and video codecs. It is, in fact, the first format to allow users to make and stream live/recorded videos over the internet.
MKV is a container format for holding multiple audio, video, picture, and text data such as subtitle tracks. It is similar to other common containers like MP4 and AVI, although MKV is open in the specification. For video contents, MKV uses a .mkv filename extension, .mka for audios, and .mks for subtitles.
